A delightful bestseller when first published in Japan, this charming illustrated book takes readers inside the magical realm of books, libraries, and bookstores. At The I Wonder Bookstore, customers come in and ask the owner countless variations on its namesake question (“I wonder if you have any books about…”) and he is happy to fill their requests in enchanting ways. In these pages readers will discover books that grow on trees, books designed to be read by two (or more) people at once, books that can only be read by moonlight, bookstore weddings, an underwater library, a boot camp for charismatic bookstore attendants, and many more wonders that celebrate the transporting magic of reading in a timeless and irresistible way.
How did I get the book? Received from publisher in exchange for an honest review
Genre: Graphic Novel
Review: The I Wonder Bookstore is most definitely a book lovers book. It is charmingly quirky in showcasing all the things book lovers “wonder” about.
Book places, book jobs, accessories, etc. These are divided into their own category and explored. The contents page at the beginning is brilliant, both in illustration and captivating the reader for what’s to come.
I really enjoyed The I Wonder Bookstore. It’s funny and imaginative.
Does it work is you aren’t book obsessed? Maybe not as much, but there is so much charm in this little book that I think people who rarely read will still enjoy exploring the The I Wonder Bookstore.
